Brrrrrrr!..........Coast of's

My my my it's been so cold here in the North East. Below 0* temperatures have kept us in. Way too cold to get out there. This is the first time I can remember seeing ice on the Webhannet River. It's been there all week and no sign of it going away none too soon.
My son came up today with my 2 granddaughters and we had a great time. Princess A always love to make english muffin pizzas with Memere. So of course that's what we did. Princess V has a dairy allergy therefore there's no cheese on hers so chose pickles instead......that's what it's all about....adding whatever they want.

That's how memories are made. They also ate chips dipped in ketchup....tastes like
french fries you know!!! These are known as "precious moments"

I had some leftover fabric from the nap mats that I made them and decided that their dolls or Teddy's needed them as well. When they came today that was their surprise.

Miss V was taking very good care of the baby doll and…

Some Finished Projects.............knit, knit and more knit

I know it's been a bit since I've been here but as you'll see I've been a bit busy. Started out with yet another Ladies lunch. Well, winter is here and some of our friends will soon be leaving to head south so one last get-together was in order. As you can see a great time was had by all. Lot's of laughs lot's of wine lot's of fun and oh yeah! great food. Thanks so much goes out to JayC for hosting this little gathering. Also got around to completing some of my projects. My sock are done and started on a new pair. Now I must confess the first pair (or top) I'm  not happy with because they don't hold their shape. And the second pair, the green ones I'm going to give away as I made them too tight! What was I thinking!!! At least the Fairisle sweater and skirt that I made for AG turned out pretty good. Looks good on and with her ice skates she's readyto go hit the ice. With this cold spell here in Maine she may need a headwarmer and maybe eve…

What a find...............and some of my WIP on my little wooden needles.

I just love this little picture here. I found it on my FB page...
and it just says it all. Well after ripping out a wall and trying to renew old memories we were able to finally take this chest out from behind the eves.

It's been there a long time and I think it was put there before the walls were even done as we had to take the top off to get it o
ut through a small little hole.

I've been sick since Saturday and so I've kept yarn on my wooden needles and working on some of my WIP's. I found that my Works In Progress Socks were in need of my attention. So I plan on getting them finished so that I can get on with another pair. These are from my favorite sock pattern and they're Classic Socks. Very easy to follow and also give you lot's of options on ndl size and yarn type. I bought some Plymouth Encore last year and look forward to turning it into another pair of socks. Also doing another sweater for Bitty. After all her wardrobe o…

Goodbye 2012........

I don't mind telling you that I for one am not sad to see 2012 head on out. Lot's of tears...and too many lows to mention. There were however some wonderful pleasant surprises that made it worth the while. But revoire a bientot.

Put Santa away for another year. Isn't he just the cutest? He's so old his poor arm doesn't work like it should..can't quite ring the bell like he did.
We did however  get his eyes to light up. This old gent was here when we moved in safely tucked away in his original packageing.
So away went the rest of the decorations...and the hand painted christmas balls.

All the projects were completed in time. I took some pictures of the AG doll furniture for my little one. I think it came out pretty good. She just loved them. Now she wants to keep them up in her room.

Now that the holiday stuff is over I can focus on doing more knitting. I decided that Bitty Baby needed some winter clothes so out came the yarn and needles and here'…
